Inca One Resources Corp. (TSXV:IO) announced that it has started a “significant performance and capacity upgrade” at its Peru-based Chala One gold mining facility. The upgrade will double the production plant’s capacity to 50 tonnes per day.
Upgrade highlights include:
- Plant capacity upgrade comes three months after first successful gold production announced on November 14, 2013.
- Construction and plans are currently being undertaken on new ball mill and tailings pond improvement.
- An onsite metallurgical laboratory has been built and placed into operation, enabling various metallurgical tests and analyses to be performed on site, including moisture content, particle size analyses and reagent consumption. Samples of mill feed and product streams are analyzed by an independent third party laboratory in Chala for gold and other values.
